Why You Need A Timeshare Beneficiary Title & Deed – If You Purchased Timeshare In Or Out Of State!
Here are nine states were: Arizona, Arkansas, Colorado, Kansas, Missouri, Nevada, New Mexico, Ohio, and
Wisconsin. Since 2007, Minnesota, Montana, and Oklahoma have also passed such laws, bringing the
current total to twelve. More states will be added later.
When the homeowner dies, title to the real estate passes to the beneficiary or beneficiaries, named in
the Transfer-on-Death Deed, similar to how title passes in a Joint Tenancy Deed. No Probate is needed.
This Deed avoids Capital Gains Taxes to be paid by the Beneficiaries at time of sale.
This Revocable Transfer-on-Death Beneficiary Deed, can be revoked. This avoids the problems that
exist when the homeowner now adds her son, her grandson, or her daughter to her deed. The home
ends up in her son’s divorce, her grandson’s bankruptcy, with liens from her daughter’s creditors.
When she asks them to give her home back to her, they frequently refuse. At her death, unnecessary
Capital Gains Taxes are paid upon the sale of the home. Although the Beneficiaries are named in a
Revocable Transfer-on-Death Beneficiary Deed, they have no ownership rights to the home until after
the death of the homeowner.
The real estate can be refused by the Beneficiary through a Disclaimer of Interest form. The rights of
creditors, as well as the debtors, are protected by this Deed.
